72,406 Sq Ft

The Building

The Digital World Centre is a highly prominent 72,406 sq ft office building which is located opposite MediaCityUK, the new home of the BBC. The building is curtain glazed and its unique pattern actually spells ‘Digital World Centre, Salford Quays’ in binary!

In the quest for innovation, the more traditional needs for office occupiers have not been overlooked. Specification, floor plate sizes, space divisibility, image, car parking and security are all critical components of a successful office scheme and the Digital World Centre offers occupiers the best of everything.

The Digital World Centre is arranged over ground and 7 upper floors. Basement car parking is provided for 50 vehicles with a further 148 spaces within the adjoining multi-storey car park. The building has been designed in three distinct sections, one, a high tech fully glazed 8 storey block, two, a 5 storey digital ‘black box’ and three a 9 storey technology tower linking the whole scheme together.
